In most cases of forgotten Google username and/or password, you can make an attempt at recovery here:

https://www.google.com/accounts/recovery

Also, depending on the model/brand of your Tablet, you can boot it into recovery mode and perform a Hard Reset. Find out your Tablet's brand and model number and check the manufacturer's site for possible Hard Reset option or details on how to install a firmware. Both methods will erase the forgotten password/pattern settings on your Tablet.

This is a very unfortunate situation. You will have to do a Factory Reset. Yes, you stand to lose all your data but you really don't have an option at this point. Your device should reset in one of the following ways - 1. Press volume up and power button together. 2. press volume up, home and power button together. 3. Press the volume down and power button together. 4. Press the power and reset button together.

How can I unlock my Android phone after making wrong patterns?

Hi,,my little brother try to open my Android phone but he draw too many patterns so I cannot open my phone

You can unlock your device by doing the following:

  • After too many pattern attempts, You should see the "forgot password" button on your screen. Click that button.
  • Then sign in with your Google account.
  • That's it. This should unlock your device.

If your account is not accepted, you may need to Hard Reset your device. To do this, you must first know what key combination you should press to access recovery mode. The key combination to access recovery is not the same on every device. Usually, you could access recovery by pressing volume up+power key while your phone is off, or volume up+home+power key for Samsung devices. Then if you could successfully access recovery, you can now reset your phone by selecting "wipe data/Factory Reset" using your volume keys, then by pressing either your power key or home key to confirm, this also depends on the brand/model you have. That's it.
